The Delta State University Department of Music will present its fall choir concert, featuring the Chamber Singers, Chorale, and Delta Singers, Sunday, Nov. 8, at 3:30 p.m. at Covenant Presbyterian Church in Cleveland.
The choirs will perform a wide variety of repertoire, including music by Eric William Barnum, Johannes Brahms, Benjamin Britten, Aaron Copland, Arvo Pärt, Eric Whitacre, and much more.
The choirs under the direction of Dr. Richard Waters, director of choral activities at Delta State, will be accompanied by Delta State music faculty Dr. Mark Butler, professor of music, and Dr. Kumiko Shimizu, assistant professor of music and Christopher Winston, a sophomore music major from Daphne, Ala.
